Statement from the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts Regarding COVID-19 and Upcoming Performances

March 12, 2020

The health and safety of all who use the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts is top priority.

There is an understandably high level of concern as coronavirus (COVID-19) spreads, and the Annenberg Center, along with the University of Pennsylvania, are closely monitoring this evolving situation.

On March 10, the University strongly recommended that events of 100 people or more be cancelled or postponed. Following this guideline, and erring on the side of caution, the Annenberg Center is postponing or cancelling the following events: The White Lama, Danú, The Crossing with Maya Beiser, SFJazz Collective, Trinity Irish Dance Company, and Daedalus Quartet, as well as all public facing guest events and Penn student performances until April 15.

If a performance is postponed, ticket holders will be automatically transferred into the new date. If a performance is cancelled, or if patrons cannot make the new date of a postponed performance, the following options are available:

The Annenberg Center will continue to follow the University’s guidelines and will follow up as the situation develops. For more information about Penn’s response, please visit
